Farrat are delighted to have recently attended the Engineering Development Trust (EDT)
judging event for this years The Year In Industry (YINI) scheme, held on the 6th July 2016 at SP Energy Networks on the Wirral.

Farrat’s CEO Oliver Farrell awarded the “Highly Recommended” award on behalf of the IMech
E’s Power Industries Division North West Centre’ to Katie Mawdsley who worked at Procter & Gamble during her year in industry.

The winner on the day (who will go on to the national final in London) was Zoe Lockley who worked at Arcadis.

As a committee member of the Greater Manchester branch of the IMechE and the Power
Industries Division North West Centre, Oliver Farrell is dedicated to encouraging students studying science, technology, engineering, maths or related subjects to gain first-hand experience of the working world.

This remains a core objective for Farrat, who look to guide more students on a career path into engineering after welcoming an EDT year in industry student (David Moores) to the business in 2013 for the year.

Farrat expect to work with more students and apprentices in the future as part of the YINI and EDT.
